As for the name of the creek, I forgot a critical detail to the story. Until about a year or so ago there was an off-trail smokies fourm that has proved to be a wealth of information. Adam Beal (Crockett on this fourm) was responding to a post about places in the Smokies where the topo maps are just wrong and told his story of doing the same thing fishing and throwing him for a loop Just as I grabbed my GPS, I remembered his post and figured out what I had done

While the real name isn't Crockett creek, I will give you a hint. If you look at a 1931 park map it has the creek correctly located (Joe Fred would probably know), but all newer maps just seem to be wrong

Thanks for others kind replies
